Is Twitter a way to clear overwhelming debt in Texas?

A Texas man used his presence on social media as a way to have his medical bills paid by his insurance company. The man was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Although he was covered by medical insurance, for which he paid a monthly premium of $400, he quickly discovered a cap on the policy limited total payments to $300,000. Due to the large amount of treatment he needed, the man was faced with overwhelming debt that he had no ability to pay.
